This story comes from WMAL who reported that an 11-year-old middle-schooler from Maryland was suspended for 10 days for simply mentioning “guns” on the school bus. The boy was talking with his friend about the Sandy Hook shooting and how he wished he had a gun to stop bad guys like that.
So now we are punishing these kids for wanting to STOP violence and protect their fellow classmates from harm. Instead of educating them on the proper and safe way to use a gun (like schools used to do) now we are obsessed with demonizing the gun itself, so any mention of it requires immediate discipline.
The principal of the school told the father of the boy (Bruce Henkelman) that after the Sandy Hook shooting any mention of the word “gun” meant an automatic 10 day suspension.
So what exactly did the boy say that was so dangerous to the school that they had to kick him out for 10 days? According to Henkelman the boy said,
” I wish I had a gun to protect everyone.”
“He wanted to defeat the bad guys”, Henkelman said. “He wanted to be the hero.”
The boy was questioned by the principal and a sheriff’s deputy, who also wanted to search the family home without a warrant, Henkelman said. “He started asking me questions about if I have firearms, and [the deputy said] he’s going to have to search my house. Search my house? I just wanted to know what happened.”
The deputy did not end up searching the home, but did ask the father a lot of questions, enough to fill a 4 page questionnaire.
The 10 day suspension was later reduced to 1 day after the school realized how stupid it had been. But giving the boy a suspension at all does not justify the fact that the school is sending the wrong message with their “zero tolerance policy”. Seems like the only thing they DO tolerate is the demonization of gun owners and even those who mention those evil tools of destruction.
Henkelman said the incident happened last December right before students were sent home for winter break, but he did not feel compelled to take his story to the public until he learned that a 5-year-old Calvert County boy was suspended for bringing a toy cap gun on a school bus.
